GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A new app is taking some of the guesswork out of recycling.

Brown county Resource Recovery, along with its Tri-County Recycling partners, Outagamie and Winnebago counties, teamed up with an app to make recycling and waste disposal easier.

The app BetterBin allow users to scan barcodes of items into the app which will then tell you how to dispose of the item in your local area.

The app contains a large database of information compiled through research and communication with municipalities and businesses.

"The database is constantly growing, allowing user suggestions for unknown items so you can effectively recycle materials anywhere in our community," said Mark Walter, business development manager at Brown County Resource Recovery.

Not only does the app provide useful information, frequent users can get rewarded. As users scan, they build points that can be redeemed for gift cards to popular retailers such as Amazon, Dunkin' Donuts and Petco.
